Worn to Everlasting

It exemplifies depression as a whole;
an old man digging his own hole.
Made youthful by the wretched deed,
body covered in dirt- heart pierced to bleed-
he sits in silence among his fallen brethren,
hand cupped over his tattered chevron,
eyes averted to the decaying ground,
his hopes for the heavens lost not found-
He has no desire for a peaceful rest,
for God put his faith to a willful test:
So the old man now made young,
was sadly made undone.
